Salvatore Ferragamo S/S 2010 / MFW / Day four

Well, that’s a wrap. Cristina Ortiz’s swan song at Salvatore Ferragamo — after two lackluster years — was a push in the right direction. This season, Ferragamo was not about discotheque darlings or trashy glamour; it was about an urbane vibe of the polished, sophisticated sort. Ortiz kicked off her Africa-inspired collection with a series of tranquil all-white looks: The floaty coats and full, gentle skirts nodded to the collection’s overall lightened-up theme, while the croc and python textures spoke to a primitive sensibility that continued throughout. Prettiest moments came with the rose-pink and violet getups, including one alluring organdy skirt with a bleeding watercolor print. But for all the positives, the collection occasionally went off-kilter with quirky details and shapes. Jodhpurs with hefty bulges on the sides? No, thank you. Ditto those finale looks that attempted to graft Masai motifs onto romantic eveningwear.
